Denver, CO, June 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The new Mekong Collection from Designer Nina Nguyen, featuring sparkling gemstones and gleaming metals, will heat up the desert during the 2017 Las Vegas JCK Show.
Inspired by the famous Mekong River, a richly bio-diverse river system that flows through five countries from the Tibetan Plateau to the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam, this collection is a fusion of Nina’s love for Vietnam and her bold, yet feminine design style.
The intricate, hand-forged, fastened gold bangles introduced in 2016 are back by popular demand, and elevated within the Mekong Collection to a study in beauty, form and function. So, too, is the artful and intriguing use of crosshatch patterns and hand-hammered techniques. Details such as hand-polished satin finishes and classic stone shapes and colors seamlessly connect the Mekong collection theme, and reflect the essence of Nina Nguyen Designs.
While the collection centers around the bangles, which fashionistas will love worn individually or stacked together, buyers can’t overlook the delightful selection east-west set marquise gemstones that make their debut in the Mekong Collection as well. Earrings, necklaces and the signature Nina Nguyen wrap bracelets, a cornerstone of Nina Nguyen Designs jewelry, complete the latest selection of pieces for 2017.
The introduction of the Mekong Collection in Las Vegas will captivate buyers with its glittering selection of gemstones, including Lapis, Chrysoprase, multi-colored Sapphires, Rutilated Black Quartz, Moonstone and Diamonds set in solid Sterling Silver or 18 Karat Gold. The metals feature decorative touches, including luxurious brushed or hand-polished satin finishes as well as the textured, crosshatch patterns unique to Nina Nguyen Designs.
The addition of the solid gold collection to her sterling silver lines continues to be well received by her loyal retail customers. With an average retail prices of $1200 on the 18 karat yellow gold line, retailers now have greater options for price points that match customer demands.
Reflecting on the creative techniques used for the Mekong Collection, Nina said, “The feeling of finding that perfect hand hammered Florentine pattern by way of the traditional metalsmithing technique was exhilarating. To top that achievement off with beautiful black oxidation, high quality conflict-free diamonds, ethically sourced gemstones bordered with beautiful 18k recycled gold is simply icing on the cake!
“As it has always been, my jewelry is ethically made with responsibly sourced stones, recycled metal and conflict free diamonds ...I’m so proud to say that our beauty goes well beyond aesthetics!”
